 Love this set! December 24, 2013 By Christian  B. (Price, UT) See All My Reviews "I bought this set on a one day sale, and boy am I glad I did. So much energy, such a great recording sound on all of the pieces. And if you collect Christmas music, you MUST have the Nutcracker pieces from this performance - you'll never tire of them!"

 Super Charged October 20, 2012 By Roy Hammer (Cummaquid, MA) See All My Reviews "This is my first collection of the discs of Martha Argerich and Friends. The selections are varied and interesting and all the performances are expert. This is not the only way to do all these works and other interpretations are valid and equally enjoyable. Sometimes the super charged playing seems a pit too fast for my taste. However, these discs give great enjoyment." Report Abuse
